of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what just happened in this fiasco in libya. governor romney had a good week talking about the economy. they want to definele what will be talked about this week on the if foreign policy front. they'll have a hearing about what went on the in libya on the security side leading up to the attack there. that's what he wants to set the stage for. if they talk about foreign policy this week, he wants it to define the terms on which we have that debate. >> because words matter, you started off with with saying i think that's what governor romney was talking about. an ongoing investigation into what happened in libya. obviously, aa he great concern. but you could not answer that question with certainty of what epic failure governor romney and republicans believe has happened over the past four years under this president's leadership, under secretary of state hillary clinton here. that is still unclear even after that 25-minute speech a couple of hours ago. >> he made the case that the middle
, in western asia. >> romney talked about military spending today. here's how he's going to spend tax dollars. here it is. >> i'll restore our navy to the size needed to fulfill our missions by building 15 ships per year, including three submarines. i will implement effective military defenses. >> where's he getting the money for this? and is all that necessary? >> that's a good question. we did a study at the center for american progress and the institute for policy studies, former assistant secretary of defense was on the board with me. we showed how if you cut national security spending, ed, not just the pentagon, but everything across the board, va, does you can cut a trillion dollars out and still bring us back to 2007, 2007 level spending in inflation-adjusted dollars. for 13 years now, we have been increasing the defense budget. you could easily cut -- to hear this man talk about what secretary gates was recommending, but to the point to increase the budget and build more ships is preposterous. we don't need that sort of increase in defense spend iing. what we need is for the national

the republican, ron paul. i will vote for mitt romney because he talks like he has a head on strong. he will get the industrial back to work. how much is obama spending every year on an green global environment? how much money has he spent on the environment? everybody keeps calling me wanting me to go to college and stuff. how can i go to work -- there is no industrial work? >> thank you for the call. you mentioned ron paul -- of course it was congressman paul ryan debating tonight. >> i want to state that you said earlier that somebody on the page stated joe biden was a fool. he was an overly aggressive. i feel like obama should have been more aggressive with romney in the first debate. look, joe biden put it this administrative record on the record. paul ryan that could not back up what he was saying. >> ok. thank you for the call. john has this point. . >> and other men are two with your calls and comments and another chance to see the debate in its entirety. less is on the phone from kentucky. >> is essentially the format really did not serve either by then -- joe biden or paul ryan. i thou
, tell me what i can do to help governor romney. lou: are you talking about as a result of the governor's performance in the debate is, that the change??3 >> we were on track to bea evy record already before. but the additional support from that night was unbelievable, we're continuing to build a greater opetion, that was pretty sol mid begin with, and -- solid to begin with, it is phenomenonnal to see the numbers in terms of the weekend, how many new contacts and volunteers, i think that the combination, momentum and you look at further io the polls, ask, where the enthusiasm is, we're seeing our enthusiasm, which was already high continue to climb, and i think theirs was not great to begin work declining a little bit. lou:hawn spicer thank you for being with us. >> much more on resurgence of governor romney with the a-team, coming up. >> new questions about president obama's campaign fundraising after an explosive new report indicates his campaign may bee accepting illegal donations. >> shannon green with our report. >> and on wall street, aention turning to fiscal cliff, a forecast o
and contrast. governor romney onstage with a plan, talking about promises of the country how we'll fix them. president obama, not that his style was off but i don't think that policies over last 4 years are things you want to brag about or -- >> are you so confident with the lead that governor has been able to post in a week, you take time to advise president obama's campaign? as well as your own? >> lou, let me, i'll put it in context your business, at the end of the day, if you don't have topics to discuss, you come on camera, you can set there and babble, it are not that lou of not prepared, but he didn't have anything to talk about. lou: i'm glad you brought me into it, you are a communications director, hit hitting 100%. >> if we is bring big bird in, i can bring you it. lou: thanks for flattery, governor romney with this lead, the question is automatic this is the nature if you will. not biassed but cant of national media, is it a sustainable bounce. first there is a bounce, then a bounce now it has to be sustainable, and then i i suppoe the next we is for how long? what is your readi
at 11:20 today. we want to know what you think these candidates should talk about, or what mitt romney should specifically address in his speech and what foreign- policy issues you think he needs to talk about more on the campaign trail. already getting reaction from facebook this morning. host: just below that, eleanor rights -- host: we want to get to your calls this morning, start calling in now. we have -- we will read to you a few more articles from this speech. "mitt romney strives to stand apart in global policy." host: again, that speech is happening at about 11:20 this morning. we will take our first call on this from clinton, illinois. matt is waiting on the independent line. good morning. caller: mitt romney needs to go after the whole libya at incident. he may have made a few missteps regarding coming out with information, but he needs to layoff of that, because it is one thing that he can actually use. i do not know if it will help his foreign policy, because obama can just come back and say -- that is what i did -- but that is something he will really have to focus on if
. >> i want to talk about, in the middle of the crisis, governor romney talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration was in that same position. they disavowed their own statement they put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, individual rights. we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is
of people, especially for the campaign itself. we did a video mash up of all the times mitt romney talked about how the president failed to get the unemployment rate below 8% in 43 straight months. obviously that's eliminated as a talking point. to the stept that this affects voters, i don't know. the debate was watched by about 70 million people; that's a lot of people and a lot of people took away positive impressions of mitt romney from that debate. i don't foe if this competes with that. but certainly we saw in the past couple of months that people were beginning to feel a lot more confident about the economic situation personally and for the country. you saw it in the polls. we were wondering why was this data turning around. bill clinton gave a great speech at the convention and everyone loved what clinton said. it now turns out there was some underlying economic trends that was feeding that that we didn't really know about, but that makes sense now. and i think if that's the case heading into the critical month of october and obviously in november where we're going to have one more
in these debates. the thing they're not talking about are mitt romney's taxes. the idea that they can look back and talk about taxes and ryan still getting caught with these lies and then the next day saying that's exactly what we meant to say. how does this work, errol. >> a promise has been made. a big broad promise has been made to splash taxes. it's estimated by a reasonable objective source that this could cost treasury 5 trillion-dollar over ten years. a lot of people are naturally curious. where are you going to get that 5 trillion-dollar, and it's not in this ticket's political best interest to answer this question. let's say they can do this. the mortgage deduction is going to have to go. there are a number of important tax loopholes, if you want to call them that, or tax incentives that will have to be ended. this is not something they're prepared to talk about. politically you have to understand that. they have 27 days left. it's not in anybody's best interest to say we're going to hawk at the most important entitlement that they've had for generations. they're trying to do somethin
take in. >> governor romney talked about the issue in his debate with president obama. conservatives and liberals are calling for a move to moral economy. for republicans cutting spend democrats it is asking the rich to pay more. governor mike huckabee joins us live . great to have you here. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, uma. >> i know it is an important issue. why do you feel morality and the economy are linked . >> some people call it generational theft and that is accurate description and if you steal from somebody that is a moral issue. that's what we are doing. we are stealing from the generation that is coming after us. we are spending money they will have to pay back on our behalf . we get the benefit and they get the burden. that is immoral and wrong to do that and that is what the huge 16 trillion debt represents. >> are you concerned about the current state of affairs is accepted by some as the new norpal? >> i am uma . let me be fair. this is not just something democrats created but republicans have done. republicans boast they don't raise taxes. that may be wond
the world more chaotic and us less safe. >> governor romney talked about the weakness -- talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that really appropriate right in the middle of the crisis? >> ryan: on that same bay the obama administration had the exact same position. they disavowed their own statement that put up earlier in the day in cairo. but it's never too early to speak up for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting when iran people were being attacked. we should alwaysing stand up for peace, for demom aresy and individual rights. and not imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does when we equivocate on our values -- it projects weakness, and when we look weak our adversaries are -- >> biden: that's all a bunch of ma lar i can. >> be specific. >> biden: the congressman here cut embassy security in his bert by $300 billion below what we asked for. number two governor romney before he even knew that our ambassador was killed he was making a political statement panne
governor romney talking about the need to do that. i think also he will talk about having a fair approach that actually applies the laws that we have on the commonwealth of virginia but across the country. one of the things that we see with the border incidents i think most people want us to have a clear policy that we are working with the states not against the states to try to get that enforced. i think if governor romney does is that i think he will do well across the board with voters in virginia. >> geraldo: did you, kristine, enjoy the debate? >> i had a blast watching the debate. it was a lot of fun. >> geraldo: where did you watch t? at the pub or in church where did you watch it? >> i was actually with me family sitting on the couch. high-fiving everybody. >> geraldo: what did you think was the strongest moment, the governor's? >>> ry moment was strong from the way he walked out exuding leadership and confidence and he would not let president obama get away with this misinformation. there is a saying a lie runs around the world while the truth is still lacing up his sneakers. tha
was the governor of massachusetts. on what grounds does mitt romney talk about job creation. you didn't create jobs under bain or when you were government of massachusetts. jobs, what are you talking about jobs for? you don't know anything about jobs, 47 out of 50 and we're in a fight with this guy? he's leading now? you're kidding me! part of the reason is progressives are more honest than conservatives. when conservatives lose a debate oh, no, we won we won. i don't care, we won. what do liberals do, they said you're right we lost. >> president obama was not prepared for his huge debate. this isn't about left, right good or bad, it's about coming to work to work. >> i think he was taken aback at the brazenness. >> i believe that mr. obama took a licking last night. the public knows that. he seemed not disinterested, but uninterested. he looked as if he really would rather be somewhere else. >> when you've got to lead, try to sit on the ball in basketball and you've got the lead, when you play conservative, you often lose the lead. >> the president bizarrely just failed to show up. >> i'm showing
they needed to do something. the first thing you're talking about with mitt romney and foreign policy had been this trip to europe, europe, poland, israel, the olympics hadn't gone so well. now they have something to talk about. how did it go? i think the main difference and what they strive to do is paint a contrast between them and the obama administration. the contrast becomes part of their posturing. how are we going to approach foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of t
with mitt romney in jerusalem when he was there while we were talking about the middle east. i think you will see a lot more of this and he thinks he has advantages in going after the president's record on on a lot of these issues. >> i recall specifically since you said he will be so careful as he words the speech today, i recall the series of gaffes on the overseas trip as well and to that point, wolf, this speech today, and we do have some of the excerpts, so i want to take a few and get your take on the differences between mitt romney's positions and president obama's positions on these very specific issues, and they are the hottest issues right now in foreign policy. start with iran. the excerpt according to the text we have been given, mitt romney is going to say, and i quote, the united states and our friends and allies will prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i will not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. if you could break down how that differs from the president's and specifically that word capability, a
it was interesting to hear the romney campaign talk about that issue from this standpoint. the other thing they raised on this conference call and that you also see in the excerpts is this idea of a two-state solution between the israelis and the palestinians. we saw on the mother jones hidden camera video romney throw cold water on the idea of a two-state solution. if you look at the excerpts, he talks about a free and democratic and prosperous palestinian state that would stand side by side with an israeli state and that's very different at least in tone, especially during the foreign policy trip overseas when he went to israel and talked about jerusalem as the capital of israel, and one other thing we should note from the campaign conference call we listened to yesterday, ashley, romney's senior foreign policy advisers were looking to jfk, harry truman, even bill clinton in his second term as presidents that they are looking at in terms of shaping a potential doctrine in the future. last week a lot of people you heard a lot of pundits on the right and left saying maybe mitt romney is mo
as an indication of weakness abroad while biden said romney's campaign talks first before they know what the facts are. reporting live in danville, i'm randall pinkston. >>> that cbs news poll found the overall impressions of both vice presidential candidate improved after the debate. 55% think biden is somebody they can relate to. 48% think ryan is. both candidates on how uncommitted voters feel about them as being effective president. we break down last night's face off. >> reporter: joe biden came out very aggressive in this debate and maintained that tone throughout. to republicans he was rude. they were using the word unhinged, complaining about his smirking. for democrats it's exactly what they wanted to see. a week ago president obama was very passive in his debate against mitt romney. it was frustrating for democrats. they wanted to see him take to it mitt romney. he didn't do that. joe biden took it to paul ryan. he interrupted. he dominated the debate. as for ryan he was fine. he was on message. he certainly didn't alienate anyone. this night was about joe biden and about changing the na
the ryan plan, you will notice, laura. is he talking about the romney plan. is he talking about the romney tax plan. the romney budget. and making it very clear for the first time and i thought he did a great job of it, talking about who is the boss and the boss is governor romney. >> laura: all right, lou, great to see you. have a great weekend. >> you too. >> laura: when we come right back, martha raddatz questions the can cats on abortion. -- raddatz on abortion. we will hear from both sides coming up. >> laura: thanks for staying with us, i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. in the unresolved problem segment tonight, just when we thought the so-called war on women debate was over, last night's moderator martha raddatz might have reignited an issue with a question about abortion and faith. >> i don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life or from their faith. our faith informs us in everything we do. my nate informs me about how to take care of the vulnerable about how to make sure that people have a chance in life. now, you weren't asked why i'm pro
morning. she is filling in. the show is also in talks to get michelle obama on the air. ann romney is in the battleground states of virginia. she greeted cancer survivors and campaign volunteers yesterday in chester. peter in sarasota, florida, on our independent line. we are talking about whether political spouses affect your vote. caller: absolutely not. and i am an independent for u.s. senate in florida. and i'me-in candidate, single with a mensa iq, and i'm the owner of two companies. geraldine ferraro was the best candidate running back years ago. vote for pete. host: let's go to our next call in hindsville, alabama, on our democrat line. good morning. no, they don't affect my vote. they are very intelligent women, but i've already made up my mind. so the spouses don't have anything to do with that. host: do they give more perspective and to who the candidates are? radio station in washington, wtop, says -- do you feel the spouses can give more of a human side to the person? caller: they might try, but most people see what the. candidates the. it's kind of hard for them to cha
, john? >> reporter: good morning. governor romney will be talking agriculture today. not surprisingly we're on a 700 acre farm owned by the cook family. a lot of soybeans and corn here. we're in madison county. governor romney won this in the caucuses by the way. he will argue the president's policies things like estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though the unemployment number is down below the psych lodge call level at 8% on the stump in newport news, governor romney found a new way to use it. >> if you look back 60 years, at all the months we had unemployment before 8% before president obama. there were 39 months. in all 60 years with unemployment above 8%. under this president there have been 43 months. under one president alone. he does not understand what it takes to create a real recovery. i do. >> reporter: bill you mentioned the pew poll. the pew poll governor romney was seen as guy with new ideas. he was the one people trust to create jobs. bill: one of t
of the crisis, governor romney and we're talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama administration. is that appropriate right in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration had the same position. let's recall date is about their own statement -- they disavowed their own statement. we have the same position but is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the revolution was up and starting, when the mullahs in iran were talking -- attacking their people. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, for individual rights, and we should not impose these devastating defense cuts because what that does what we equivocate on our values, when we show we are cutting our defense, it mixes more week. it projects weakness and when we look weak, our adversaries are willing to test us. they're less willing -- >> that is a bunch of malarkey. what he said is not accurate. >> be specific. >> this lecture an embassy security, the congressmen here cut embassy security to his budg
this in massachusetts. if you talk to democrats in massachusetts, they say romney was a very good governor, that they could work with him. maybe obama saw this because the significance of the last 3 1/2 years in the obama presidency is there was never cooperation or rarely cooperation. no or very few bipartisan agreements. the only time they did something was when they brought joe biden in to negotiate with the republicans. so maybe obama sensed that. but i don't know -- it's worthy to investigate. >> sean: yeah. one theory i have, i want to ask you one more question about your theory. i would argue, $6 trilon in debt, very hard to explain away. i would argue that, you know when 2012 economically is worse than 2011, which was worse than 2010, unemployment in 2012, fewer jobs in this year than last year and the year before. things are trending down. obviously, that's troubling for the president in terms of trying to defend it. but back to your theory, if he was so bad that there something else going on, that could be troubling in and of itself. you know, we need presidents that are strong.
talked about this on sunday. i want to actual, we made a case that could be decisive because romney was so far down in the public image. more importantly, you know, sean, all of those numbers are very close. you can't say this -- the numbers have changed from what they were. there is more coming, potentially. more importantly, debates affect how you view the race and the candidate. romney's favorability has soared. he was upside down in favorability. even in the cbs poll, right after the post-pam of uncommitted voters, he went from 30% believing he cared about people to almost 53%, almost doubled it in 90 minutes. that's the movement that we care about. >> sean: listen, nobody's doubting -- i can -- with certainty say obama's going to show up. he's going to be aggressive. he is probably likely to over -- you know, go overboard. >> here's the obama narrative, simply, sean. fiattack governor romney as his campaign has, he drives up his negative and that improves his vote share. what his handlers are saying, you missed opportunity after opportunity to position governor romney as being
and steady commander-in-chief. mitt romney shows he would be the exact opposite. behind the tough talk he is erratic and unsteady and irresponsible on his audition in the world stage. would you agree with that. >> of course not. they can say over and over again. especially when romney talks about not setting a time limit. >> brian: let me bring you to afghanistan real quick before we run out of time. a reporter came out in a speech in washington and said the administration has been lying and there is a narrative coming out of the washington that is nonsense. she got out of afghanistan like you d and she said the taliban is gaining strength and we are not told the truth. that is a farrah phrase for word and that is her position. is it yours. >> the taliban is gaining strength and there is a narrative from administration. i want the narrative to be progress in afghanistan especially with all . sacrifice and surge and the guys who fought. but the political solution hasn't moved. karzai's government is corrupt and the taliban is gaining strength. it is not a pretty picture what of the world i
